The anohana (Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Boku-tachi wa Mada Shiranai.) and Toradora! anime staff announced the title of their new original anime feature film on Wednesday: Kokoro ga Sakebitagatterun Da. (The Heart Wants to Shout). The staff made the announcement at the climax of the Chichibu Yomatsuri (Chichibu Night Festival).
The staff created an illustration to thank the citizens of the Chichibu region:
The anohana anime's official website announced the project in August and posted an image of an egg. The new film will be the anohana team's second project that focuses on a group of young people. Like the anohana anime, the story will be set in Chichibu.
Tatsuyuki Nagai (A Certain Scientific Railgun, Waiting in the Summer) is again directing the film at the studio A-1 Pictures. Mari Okada (M3 the dark metal, Hana-Saku Iroha) is writing the script, and Masayoshi Tanaka (Highschool of the Dead, Joshiraku) is designing the characters.
